What People Say About Dr. Arthur Hernandez, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Hernandez is great. He listens and does everything he can to help. The problem isn't with him, but the other doctors he has helping him they don't listen. They are unhelpful. I don't know how many times I had to call back because they got miligrams wrong on medication. And if you realize it after you pick up your meds, theres no help. Your screwed until next visit. I don't like Dr Sonny or the newest edition, I can't pronounce his name, so I don't know how it's spelled. If you get a chance, demand for Dr Hernandez.

Good doctor but I can't recommend him. Both visits to him were over 3.5 hours long and the staff just took it as the price you pay for seeing him. Visit with doctor was 10 minutes the rest was waiting time.

Other than a long wait, i had a pleasant experience & felt he paid attention to what I was saying. A little intimidating but all in all, I'd recommend Dr.Hernandez & his staff.
